A great book to go for, especially if you are a long term fan of the best comedy act of all time. Gorgeous pictures of Rich and Stew, as well as plenty of material which makes for a hilarious read. Ten out of ten...

I still laugh at everything I laughed at the first time I read it. Probably only for ardent fans as some may not get their humour. However, if you do enjoy their kind of "fun" then DO NOT pass this one by!

An excellent alternative to Deborah Addington's 'A Hand in the Bush', exploring the more light-hearted elements of an uncommonly romantic taboo. Fortunately the authors also address the vital procedures of health and safety with due sobriety. As I learned in the 70s, there's nothing 'fun' about enduring a major prolapse. Some wedding-night that turned out to be...

Lee & Herring - radio contributers of shows such as "Lionel Nimrod's..." & "On The Hour" hit paydirt in '94 when Radio1 commissioned their own series.
"Fist Of Fun" Hit the airwaves & was universally acclaimed. The popularity led to two BBCTV "Fist Of Fun" series, and this book...
This is simply the funniest TV tie-in book available. Written by one of the funniest, most under-rated comedy duos of recent years.
Sadly, it's unlikely that Lee & Herring will be repeated on telly, so this & the CD release are the closest you'll get to the genius of the duo.
This book brims with wit, irony, sarcasm, silliness, self-deprication & an extreme sense of sub-kenny everett whimsy.
It is sublime in it's nonsense & incoherent ramblings & is simply the best transfer of stand-up comedy to paper that I have ever seen.
If you can get a copy - GET IT!!! You will not be disappointed.
